Appendix J.3 - Vector Functions and Parametric Curves

Section Details:
  • Definition and properties of vector functions and parametric equations
  • Graphing vector functions and parametric equations and then determining the direction the curve is traced as the parameter increases
  • Converting between parametric equations and Cartesian equations
  • Vector and parametric equations of a line
